In part 1 we break down the meaning of the words Roman Catholic Church and Vatican as well as touched upon some idol worshiping and why Latin was/is the official language of the Roman Catholic Church.
Again Mystery Babylon is your Entire World. The pope (All of them) are your false prophets and the Roman Catholic Church is the Whore of Babylon. In part 2 we are going to identify the origins of Rome. Where appropriate I will insert questions about the pope.
What was Rome first called?
The Eternal City It was first called The Eternal City (Latin: Urbs Aeterna; Italian: La Città Eterna) by the Roman poet Tibullus in the 1st century BC, and the expression was also taken up by Ovid, Virgil, and Livy. Rome is also called "Caput Mundi" (Capital of the World).

Is The Catholic Church a Government?-U.S Department of State
The Holy See is the universal government of the Catholic Church and operates from Vatican City State, a sovereign, independent territory. The Pope is the ruler of both Vatican City State and the Holy See.
What does the word Catholic Mean?
The word Catholic (usually written with uppercase C in English when referring to religious matters; derived via Late Latin catholicus, from the Greek adjective καθολικός (katholikos), meaning "universal") comes from the Greek phrase καθόλου (katholou), meaning "on the whole", "according to the whole" or "in general"
Beginning in the eighth century B.C., Ancient Rome grew from a small town on central Italy’s Tiber River into an empire that at its peak encompassed most of continental Europe, Britain, much of western Asia, northern Africa and the Mediterranean islands. Among the many legacies of Roman dominance are the widespread use of the Romance languages (Italian, French, Spanish, Portuguese and Romanian) derived from Latin, the modern Western alphabet and calendar and the emergence of Christianity as a major world religion.
7 Legendary Kings of Rome-(History.com)
A line of Sabine, Latin and Etruscan (earlier Italian civilizations) kings followed in a non-hereditary succession. There are seven legendary kings of Rome: Romulus, Numa Pompilius, Tullus Hostilius, Ancus Martius, Lucius Tarquinius Priscus (Tarquin the Elder), Servius Tullius and Tarquinius Superbus, or Tarquin the Proud (534-510 B.C.). While they were referred to as “Rex,” or “King” in Latin, all the kings after Romulus were elected by the senate.
1st King Romulus - (History.com)
As legend has it, Rome was founded in 753 B.C. by Romulus and Remus, twin sons of Mars, the god of war. Left to drown in a basket on the Tiber by a king of nearby Alba Longa and rescued by a she-wolf, the twins lived to defeat that king and found their own city on the river’s banks in 753 B.C. After killing his brother, Romulus became the first king of Rome, which is named for him.
Common Sense time:
Please note the similarities of events recorded in the Hebrew Bible that was spoken about Moses, Cain and Able. Again we know we have been lied to and live in a state of Social/Collective Amnesia.
It's important to understand that Adam and Eve and Cain Moses... Occurred Before The Roman Empire and that the Bible Did Not Derive from Rome. It has been Changed by Rome but is Not where The Bible Was Written. If That was the case, then Hebrew wouldn't exist. This is a narrative people push to get you to believe the lies that Yah isn't real. WE are Trying to come out of the sytem of lies and deceit.
When I typed in Historical Events on this day in 735 B.C all I got was the above information about Rome Being formed. Hummmm....

750-510 BC- Roman Legion Army- (Ancient.edu)
The semi-legendary celeres or trossuli - a 300-man cavalry corps which the first kings of Rome incorporated into the legion - is formed, later their number is increased to 600.
What/whom are the Celeres or trossuli?
The celeres were the bodyguard of the Kings of Rome. Traditionally established by Romulus, the legendary founder and first King of Rome, the celeres comprised three hundred men, ten chosen by each of the curiae
Celeres in Latin means-Quick
Trossuli, ōrum, m., a name given to the Roman cavalry, from Trossulum, a town of Etruria, which was conquered by them, Varr. ap. Non. 49, 3; cf.: Junius Gracchanus in Plin. 33, 2, 9, § 36; Fest. p. 367 Mull.
Legion- G3003-†λεγεώνlegeṓn, leg-eh-ohn'; of Latin origin; a "legion", i.e. Roman regiment (figuratively):—legion.
Strong's Number G3003 matches the Greek λεγιών (legiōn), which occurs 4 times in 4 verses in the Greek concordance of the KJV
(Mark 5:15, Luke 8:30, Mark 5:9, Matthew 26:53)
Does The Pope have guards?-(dr. mr. Frans Willem Lantink, International and Political History)
Known officially as the Pontifical Swiss Guard, the small army of around 135 Swiss soldiers based in the Vatican is responsible for the safety of the Pope.
The origins of the Swiss Guard date back over five hundred years. Late in the Middle Ages, it became a tradition to recruit Swiss mercenaries as special military units. The Swiss soldiers were famous for their military professionalism.
The Swiss Guard of the Vatican is the only Swiss Guard that is still active today. The unit was founded by Pope Julius II in 1506. Many guards died protecting a later pope during the looting of Rome of 1527 (commemorating the anniversary of this 'martyrdom' has since become a tradition).
Until 1860, popes were also the secular rulers of Central Italy and had their own armies. This papal land ownership was lost in the unification of Italy, with the exception of the city of Rome. Today, Vatican City is a sovereign city state. The tradition of a personal guard for the head of state, the pope, is preserved. This guard still consists of young Swiss - Catholic - men up to age 30.
2 King-Numa Pompilius- (Britannica.com)
(flourished c. 700 bce), second of the seven kings who, according to Roman tradition, ruled Rome before the founding of the republic (c. 509 bce).
Numa is said to have reigned from 715 to 673. He is credited with the formulation of the religious calendar and with the founding of Rome’s other early religious institutions, including the Vestal Virgins; the cults of Mars, Jupiter, and Romulus deified (Quirinus); and the office of pontifex maximus.
Brothers and Sisters as you see here the pope has been around since the time of Numa Pompilius.
Hosea 4:6 KJV
My people are destroyed for lack of knowledge: because thou hast rejected knowledge, I will also reject thee, that thou shalt be no priest to me: seeing thou hast forgotten the law of thy God, I will also forget thy children.
3rd King- Tullus Hostilius, -(Encyclopedia Britannica)
traditionally, the third king of Rome, reigning from 672 to 641 bc. He was a legendary figure, the legend probably influenced by that of Romulus. Both Tullus and Romulus supposedly carried on war with the neighbouring cities of Fidenae and Veii, doubled the number of Roman citizens, organized the army, and disappeared from earth in a storm. Such legends are reported as fact by the historians Livy (59 bc–ad 17) and Dionysius of Halicarnassus (flourished late 1st century bc). It is possible that Alba Longa, about 12 miles (19 km) southeast of Rome, was destroyed during the years in which Tullus is thought to have reigned.
Tullus’s reported policy of incorporating Alba into the Roman state and enrolling its chiefs in the Senate is entirely in accord with the historical fact of Rome’s early expansion by amalgamation rather than by subjugation.
The founding by Tullus of the first Senate chambers, the Curia Hostilia, and of the Comitium (an area, directly in front of the Curia, where the people met to vote), may be an authentic tradition. The earliest floor of the Comitium belongs to the late 7th century, and architectural ornaments found there imply the existence of a major building, which may have been a Senate chamber.
WE must keep in mind that Archeology is discovering lost cities all of the time. Just because something hasn't been found doesn't mean it isn't real or doesn't exist. WE are Taking Yah out of The Box of Religion and Applying Him to Everything as He is In All Things and Created All Things.
We must also keep in mind that the Vatican and Rome have worked hard to hide who we really are and it is said that the Vatican holds history of everything in its catacombs.

THE ROMAN CURIA
In exercising supreme, full, and immediate power in the universal Church, the Roman pontiff makes use of the departments of the Roman Curia which, therefore, perform their duties in his name and with his authority for the good of the churches and in the service of the sacred pastors.
4th King-Ancus Marcius, (Britannica.com)
(flourished 7th century bc), traditionally the fourth king of Rome, from 642 to 617 bc. The details of his reign, provided by Roman historians such as Livy (64 or 59 bc–ad 17), must be regarded as largely legendary—e.g., the settlement of the Aventine Hill outside Rome, the first extension of Rome beyond the Tiber River to the Janiculum Hill, and the founding of the port of Ostia at the mouth of the Tiber.
These hills still exist today.
5th King-Tarquin, Latin in full Lucius Tarquinius Priscus, original name Lucomo, (Britannica.com)
(flourished 6th century bc), traditionally the fifth king of Rome, accepted by some scholars as a historical figure and usually said to have reigned from 616 to 578.
Changing his name to Lucius Tarquinius, he was appointed guardian to the sons of King Ancus Marcius. Upon the king’s death Tarquin assumed the throne. Eventually Ancus’ sons had Tarquin murdered. Tanaquil then managed to put her son-in-law Servius Tullius in power.
The legends maintain that Tarquin increased the number of persons of senatorial and equestrian rank. He is thought to have instituted the Roman Games and to have begun the construction of a wall around the city.
Does the Vatican Have a Wall Around it?-Question I asked Google
The territory of this landlocked sovereign city-state consists of a walled enclave within the city of Rome, Italy. It has an area of approximately 49 hectares (121 acres) and a population of about 825. This makes Vatican City the smallest independent state in the world by both area and population.
When was the Wall Built?-(New York Times)
ninth century (The 9th century was a period from 801 through 900 in accordance with the Julian calendar. ) Some of the walls in Vatican City were built in the ninth century by Pope Leo IV in an attempt to protect it from attacks by pirates and other marauders, historians said.
6th King- Servius Tullius- (World Biographical Encyclopedia)
King Servius Tullius (c. 580- 530 BCE) introduced six classes of wealth upon Rome’s citizens; the lowest group had no property and were excluded from the military, whilst the highest group, the equites, formed the cavalry.
Most Roman sources name Servius' mother as Ocrisia, a young noblewoman taken at the Roman siege of Corniculum and brought to Rome, either pregnant by her husband, who was killed at the siege: or as a virgin. She was given to Tanaquil, wife of king Tarquinius, and though slave, was treated with the respect due her former status. In one variant, she became wife to a noble client of Tarquinius. In others, she served the domestic rites of the royal hearth as a Vestal Virgin, and on one such occasion, having damped the hearth flames with a sacrificial offering, she was penetrated by a disembodied phallus that rose from the hearth.
According to Tanaquil, this was a divine manifestation, either of the household Lar or Vulcan himself. Thus Servius was divinely fathered and already destined for greatness, despite his mother's servile status; for the time being, Tanaquil and Ocrisia kept this a secret.
He founded the earliest and most important shrine of the Latin deity Diana on the Aventine Hill. A crucial treaty between Rome and the Latin League is also assigned to his reign. Two levels of the shrine excavated at the Church of Saint Omobono date from the time of Servius.
King 7-Tarquin, Latin in full Lucius Tarquinius Superbus, (britannica.com)
flourished 6th century bc—died 495 bc, Cumae [near modern Naples, Italy]), traditionally the seventh and last king of Rome, accepted by some scholars as a historical figure. His reign is dated from 534 to 509 bc.
Eventually a group of senators led by Lucius Junius Brutus raised a revolt, the immediate cause of which was the rape of a noblewoman, Lucretia, by Tarquin’s son Sextus. The Tarquin family was expelled from Rome, and the monarchy at Rome was abolished (traditionally 509 bc).
The text of a treaty between a Tarquin—probably Tarquinius Superbus—and the city of Gabii, 12 miles (19 km) from Rome, did actually exist and was preserved in the Temple of Semo Sancus in Rome until the age of Augustus (27 bc–ad 14).
End of The Monarchy 509 BC. (history.com)
Rome’s era as a monarchy ended in 509 B.C. with the overthrow of its seventh king, Lucius Tarquinius Superbus, whom ancient historians portrayed as cruel and tyrannical, compared to his benevolent predecessors. A popular uprising was said to have arisen over the rape of a virtuous noblewoman, Lucretia, by the king’s son. Whatever the cause, Rome turned from a monarchy into a republic, a world derived from res publica, or “property of the people.”
Rome was built on seven hills, known as “the seven hills of Rome”—Esquiline Hill, Palatine Hill, Aventine Hill, Capitoline Hill, Quirinal Hill, Viminal Hill and Caelian Hill.
Is the Vatican a Monarchy?-History.com
Vatican City is the smallest country in the world. Encircled by a 2-mile border with Italy, Vatican City is an independent city-state that covers just over 100 acres, making it one-eighth the size of New York's Central Park. Vatican City is governed as an absolute monarchy with the pope at its head.
When did the Vatican Become a Monarchy Again? (history.com)
The dispute between the Italian government and the Catholic Church ended in 1929 with the signing of the Lateran Pacts, which allowed the Vatican to exist as its own sovereign state and compensated the church $92 million (more than $1 billion in today's money) for the Papal States
Why is the Vatican a monarchy? (PBS.org)
“The Vatican … is the last absolute monarchy in the world today. The pope, when he is elected, is answerable to no human power. He has absolute authority over the entire Roman Catholic Church, direct authority that reaches down to individual members.
